Community safety is everyone's business. That's the message from Manning Great Lakes Police District ahead of next week's community safety precinct committee meeting.
Officers will meet with the community on Tuesday, March 12 at MidCoast Council's Taree chambers as an opportunity for all parties to share perspectives on local crime and safety issues.
Residents and business owners will be invited to assist with strategies designed to address local crime concerns.
District Commander Superintendent Shane Cribb and Chief Inspector Christine George have been earmarked as attendees.
They will be able to promote accurate local crime information and raise awareness of crime prevention approaches at the meeting.
The meeting gets underway from 1pm.
Meanwhile, the police district has promoted NSW Police's next of kin program.
Residents living alone can have the contact details of their nominated person recorded at police stations in Taree and Forster.
Information includes any medical alerts that would be useful in an emergency situation.
